Summer Staples: Scoop Neck Shirts

I love scoop necks, and the flattering way they show off skin without plunging into cleavage. First up I have a shirt that was one of my favorite things to wear all summer long. It's the softest, most luxurious bamboo knit (96% bamboo/4% lycra! Amazing!), and I gave it a long, looser cut, and a cowl on the lower neckline. I have to say, I absolutely adore anything made out of this fabric.

I made this next shirt quite a while ago but didn't like it, so I hung it up and let it sit for about six months. Then, at one point this summer, I was in a hurry and desperate for something to wear. I ran into my sewing room & this caught my eye, so I tried it on with the scrap fabric wrapped around, and it just worked. It's very summery and bright, and I like the sort of simple innocence it seems to convey.

Things are busy for me with school and such, so I'm not quite sure I'll have much of a fall collection to show you! I'm working on getting my portfolio together (exciting!), visiting & applying to colleges, as well as getting schoolwork out of my way! I'm hoping to get something together, as I have fabric waiting and designs on paper, but I unfortunately won't have it up as soon as I'd hoped.

    No, I don't think it's working for anyone. :( It's been like this on and off for the last three days... and since it's the weekend, it might not be fixed until Monday. There are usually people in meebo, though!


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
